One of the only true majors out there. One of the only majors where you receive a real education. All "great" people had some knowledge of history. An opposite of this major would be a Business Administration Major. One does not necessarily have to become a history teacher upon graduation. Hell, a history major without much direction could become that business major's boss someday.
Oh, you're a Business major? What you're still taking ESL classes? No, not all history majors become teachers.
